Looks like the first two are Prime and Bumblebee.

I don't know what Takara is doing, or why, but I love it so much.

Nice. Well, I'm not sure about the chameleon/axe thing, and Bumblebee's double sword looks silly in sword mode, but otherwise they're pretty cool.

Names: Optimus Prime Blaster, Bumblebee Sword, Zad (lizard), and Cob (cobra).

Edit: Or it's Sad and Gob. The text isn't clear enough to tell.

Say hello to Modus Prime, Sparkplug, Geckobot, and Corahda!

So, how good are capsule toys in general? Is this going to look more like a Kabaya gum kit than a minicon? Has this been done before with TFs?

Not that it'll stop me getting them(That could be price and difficulty.), but I'm a bit curious.

It depends on how much they charge for them.

It's not like the 25-50 cent machines here. You can have $5-10 machines in Japan.

Oh, interesting, thanks!

These are neat little things, though. So if they only come in one color I think I'd be fine.

Man, I'm not planning on getting into Prime, but I do love me all of these targetmaster minicons. I really hope to see them released on their own Stateside.

I wonder how much they'd have to charge for blind-packed Minicons in the U.S.

I keep seeing stuff like the Lego and Mega Bloks figures sold that way and I think it'd be kinda cool to have Transformers in that niche too.

Well, Hasbro has dipped their toes in that market with the Blindbag Miniponies, so it's possible unless Hasbro has already stated otherwise.

Oh, these are cool. And, strangely, very 3rd partyish. Huh.

In parts and paint app terms these can't be far off the cost of the Mega Bloks Halo spartans, so they certainly feel like they'd be doable at that price.

The Cobra looks like it might transform into Knock Out's Cattle Prod.
